Your Dream Kitchen Cabinets
The largest decision in a kitchen remodel is how to remodel the cabinets. Taking your remodeling budget into consideration, we always ask homeowners what elements of the kitchen they may want to splurge on or make a statement with. The answer may be the kitchen cabinets.
Replace the Cabinet Doors
An excellent option for homeowners who are looking to update their kitchens without moving walls or replacing all the kitchen cabinets is to replace only the doors of the kitchen cabinets. Your current kitchen cabinet doors may be dated by a cut out groove in the wood or they may not be sturdy enough for your taste. Replacing the doors with an updated look, and new hardware completes the kitchen cabinet update. Don’t forget to add soft closing hinges and drawers for that designer touch!
Custom Kitchen Cabinets
If you desire a look that is all your own, if kitchen cabinets from Lowe’s or IKEA are not your style and if the kitchen cabinets you have no longer serve a purpose to you, custom kitchen cabinets can be crafted to your exact specifications and design. Custom cabinets can be made from Birch, Maple, Oak, Mahogany, Cherry or Knotty Elder woods. Clients who choose custom kitchen cabinets know that having something unique and special is what will set their kitchen apart and hey will ow have the kitchen exactly the way they need it to be. As a General Contractor your kitchen cabinets will be expertly measured, designed, created and installed.
Don’t throw them out. Refinish the Kitchen Cabinets
If your cabinet surfaces have not been saturated with grease a good option for remodeling your kitchen cabinets is to keep the existing cabinets and repaint them. If the cabinets are in good shape, this is an option for updating an outdated look. Kitchen cabinets can be stained, glazed or painted. The option to refinish the kitchen cabinets may be just as costly as replacing them due to the labor that is involved. If you are looking to update your cabinets and do not have to reconfigure the kitchen, refinishing or repainting the cabinets is a design choice for many homeowners. We can also add trim to the existing cabinets to create a custom look. Replace the hardware on the cabinets are you will practically have brand new cabinets!

Countertops Options to Consider
Choosing countertops for your kitchen remodel is going to be difficult a there are so many excellent options to choose from! Your countertops can either be chosen to blend into your backsplash or highlight the style of the design you’ve chosen. There are surfaces made from:
- Slate: an upscale finish sensitive to lime and acid stains.
- Granite: durable and can be wild at times due to the marbling, be sure to clean, seal and repair as needed.
- Quartz: many maintenance free, stain, acid, scratch resistant colors and patterns. The non-porous surface doesn’t need to be sealed.
- Laminate: making a comeback due to its cost savings and multitude of colors, faux looks and designs.
- Wood: functional, decorative and budget friendly. Heat resistant. Need to seal.
